Overview

If you're like most 21st century sojourners, you may have a hard time answering that question. Peace is, after all, a word from the realm of spirituality. It's not always easy to hear the small voice over the cacophony of ringing cell phones, the constant blare of the TV, and the discordant honks and curses of rush hour. This book, the autobiography of Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph.D., provides a glimpse of an entirely different way of living.

Readers of Touched by Fire will follow this extraordinary man on a journey from his birthplace in an ancient village in India to his current home in the rolling hills of northeastern Pennsylvania, where he serves as spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute. Along the way you'll meet a variety of teachers who guided Tigunait in crafting a contemplative life filled with spiritual richness, wisdom, and inner peace.

This book is not a "how to" guide to enlightenment. Nor is it a "call" to any particular religious tradition. But in its description of Tigunait's life-the years of disciplined study and the struggle to master emotions like anger, despair, and pride-some of the keys are revealed. And its ultimate message, that we're all the same beneath our cultural, religious, and political facades, is desperately needed in our world of tumult and tears.
